I am firing single mom

My work has a strict call off/late policy. If you are late or leave early (even 1 minute) unless you find your own replacement you get 1/2 point. If you call off you get 1 point. If you call off several days in a row for the same reason you still only get one point but if you call off one day, work a day or two between and call off again it is 2 points. You get 8 points a year. If you have a letter from drs, courts, etc you still get a point (only exception is jury duty).

Well I had a employee that called off because her kids had chicken pox. That gave her point number 8. She came back to work, about a week has passedand I had to send her home because she now has chicken pox. Corporate told me I HAVE to fire her. I feel so bad because she is a hard worker and is a single mom. I begged and pleaded with corporate and they told me there was no exception and about 6 months ago they fired a man after getting squaded out of one of their facilities because he had a stroke. He already had 8 points too. I just feel so bad. I have not told her yet. I just feel like crying. I have argued with everyone I could in corporate.

    That is just about the worst policy I have heard. I personally would not work for a place that fired someone for having a stroke.

    I've had to fire a single dad before. I hated doing it, but he was unreliable.
